What we believe about giving
We believe that giving is indeed a part of our Worship. Our giving reflects our trust in God as our provider. Keeping 90% and giving 10% to God yields better results than you keeping 100%. We believe that God rewards us according to our sacrifice and that not all results of giving are in the form of increased finances. Giving can be in the form of Time, Talent, and Treasure. God can reward your giving with more Holiness (John 14:21), Answered Prayers (John 14:13-14), and increase in our Ministry (John 15:8)
You may pay your tithes and offering using our Mt Olive Envelopes, by cash, or by check. You may also pay using the Givelify app on your phone.
We can also mail your tithes and offerings. Tithe and offering envelopes are available in the back of the pews in the Sanctuary or in the church foyer. Please take time to pray, then simply place your check within the envelope, add a postage stamp and drop in the mailbox.

FOUNDATIONS OF GIVING
GOD OWNS IT ALL (PSALMS 24:1-2)
God gives us stewardship over what already belongs to him and requires that we handle it in such a way that demonstrates wisdom and faith
GIVE WITH A GRATEFUL HEART (2 CORINTHIANS 9:7)
We are to give generously and graciously. As we give generously and with thanksgiving, God showers us even more with his love because of our hearts desire to give back to Him what He has given to us
GIVING REFLECTS OUR TRUST IN GOD (MALACHI 3:10)
When we give, we are putting God to the test. His words says prove me now, so in other words, He is saying to us, if we are faithful in our giving, He has no choice but to faithful to us in return.
Promise Renewal Commitment
The Promise Renewal Commitment is a five-year fundraising effort above and beyond our tithes and offerings.
Your 2020 Promise Renewal Pledge will address the following needs:
- Pay down the current mortgage.
- Assist with funding the planned multi-purpose building
- Make Capital Improvements to the existing church facilities
- Pay the Connectional Assessment for the year.
Addressing key obligations through the Promise Renewal Commitment will allow tithes and offerings to be used for day to day expenses and increased ministry to serve both members and our community such as Community Feeding and Clothing programs.
